Mountain pine beetle population forecast survey results

Description

Mortality assessments of mountain pine beetles are conducted annually between mid-May and mid-June to predict how successfully beetle populations may spread the upcoming year. The results of these surveys, combined with aerial surveys and ground assessments conducted in August/September, help the province prioritize areas for single tree treatment and timber harvest control tactics implemented in the fall and winter.
